XPS approved in Canada

XPS™ approved in Canada

XVIVO Perfusion has obtained approval for the XPS™ (Xvivo Perfusion System) in Canada. This enables clinical use of the XPS™ in Canada.

Health Canada has approved the XPS™ for clinical use in Canada. With its integrated Hamilton C2 ventilator and MAQUET CardioHelp centrifugal pump, the XPS™ is the most flexible and complete platform on the market for EVLP (Ex Vivo Lung Perfusion), and it gives the transplant team full control over the entire process. The design of the XPS™ means that X-rays and automatic measurements of oxygen and pH can be carried out while EVLP evaluation is ongoing. The XPS™ has a user-friendly graphic interface with touchscreen functionality and data capture of the lung’s values during the entire EVLP procedure. This provides the basis for analysis and evaluation before a final clinical decision.

XVIVO Perfusion’s XPS™ and STEEN Solution™ are the only approved products in the USA for evaluation of marginal lungs before transplantation. The XPS™ and STEEN Solution™ are also CE marked in Europe and approved by the TGA for clinical use in Australia. Leading clinics in the USA and Europe have obtained good clinical results when using XPS™.

“We are delighted that the XPS™ is also now available for clinical lung transplantation in Canada, as this means that the XPS™ has now been approved in all the major markets in the world,” says Magnus Nilsson, CEO of XVIVO Perfusion.
